Howard Charles Must Portray General Dumas!
OK, guys, lets get down to the business.
Howard has reached out to fans several times, asking to support him as Dumas. My first post in which I reblogged Howard’s plea on Instagram has 1,400 notes (not to mention other posts)! BUT only 270 people (as of today, July 31st) signed the petition. WHY??
PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION. It will take you just a second.

And another! (Howard with the book is adorable)

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION HERE!

Howard Charles (Porthos in the BBC’s The Musketeers) wants to play General Dumas in the new film The Black Count being produced by Sony Pictures and directed by Cary Fukunaga (Jane Eyre). The film is based on the book by Tom Reiss, and Howard has asked his fans to support his bid to play this important figure in history. Please sign this petition and let the producers of the film know that Howard has many supportive fans who trust only him to portray Dumas in this film! Let’s make our voices heard!!
also tweet @SonyPictures to show your support by using hashtags like #wefounddumas #howardforgeneral #theblackcount #howardcharles

I know that there are other brilliant actors who might be very good in this role, but the thing is that Howard really really wants it. He is already playing (quite brilliantly) Porthos in the BBC adaptation of The Three Musketeers and he is already invested into it and I am sure he will be quite brilliant as Dumas himself. Please, support Howard. It will make not only fans but also the actor himself very happy.
Thank you. x

In addition to essentially inventing the computer, Alan Turing also broke the German Enigma Code during World War II which paved the way for the D-Day invasion. The man was a hyper-genius. I’ve read descriptions of his work by mathematical physicist Sir Roger Penrose. He’s been a hero of mine ever since.
The level of thought required to come up with the stuff he came up with is totally beyond my comprehension. I actually did not even know about his orientation until much later. He was prosecuted and ordered to undergo chemical castration. Soon thereafter, he committed suicide by eating a cyanide-laced apple.

The government forced him to take estrogen as a punishment (or “cure”?). He began to develop breasts and other side effects.
He committed suicide by biting into a cyanide laced apple. This is supposedly the inspiration for the name/logo of Apple computers.

Reblogging again because more people need to know about Turing dammit.

Whoa…

Mathematically Correct Breakfast - How to Slice a Bagel into Two Linked Halves. If a torus is cut by a Möbius strip it will split up into to interlocking rings.

It is not hard to cut a bagel into two equal halves which are linked like two links of a chain. Figure 1:

  1. To start, you must visualize four key points.  Center the bagel at the origin, circling the Z axis. A is the highest point above the +X axis.  B is where the +Y axis enters the bagel. C is the lowest point below the -X axis.  D is where the -Y axis exits the bagel.
  2. These sharpie markings on the bagel are just to help visualize the geometry and the points.  You don’t need to actually write on the bagel to cut it properly.
  3. The line ABCDA, which goes smoothly through all four key points, is the cut line.  As it goes 360 degrees around the Z axis, it also goes 360 degrees around the bagel.
  4. The red line is like the black line but is rotated 180 degrees (around Z or through the hole). An ideal knife could enter on the black line and come out exactly opposite, on the red line. But in practice, it is easier to cut in halfway on both the black line and the red line. The cutting surface is a two-twist Mobius strip; it has two sides, one for each half.
  5. After being cut, the two halves can be moved but are still linked together, each passing through the hole of the other.

It is much more fun to put cream cheese on these bagels than on an ordinary bagel. In additional to the intellectual stimulation, you get more cream cheese, because there is slightly more surface area.
Topology problem: Modify the cut so the cutting surface is a one-twist Mobius strip. (You can still get cream cheese into the cut, but it doesn’t separate into two parts). See more at: Mathematically Correct Breakfast: How to Slice a Bagel into Two Linked Halves by George W. Hart.

Maybe, that’s one of the reasons why I love bagel :)
